two of my one on one interview with blackrock president rob kapito, coming up later on "power lunch." here is a quick preview of what he has it say about the state of investing. >> what i'm really worried about more than the fiscal cliff is that it's taking attention from investors to actually invest. so you can't invest for the future in the future. almost every asset class has a positive return p th year. so if you sat on the sideline, worried about the fiscal cliff, sitting in cash, in your bank account, you've left double-digit returns and the equity market, high single digit returns across many fixed income products and commodity products. so there you go. another year has been wasted because you're so focused on what's going on in washington and you should be very focused on your own pocketbook right now. and invest now and not wait for the future. >> but if you had done that as well, you have to be in the right spots. >> and you have to be in it -- in it for the long-term, right? allocate, stick to the plan and be in it for the long-term. and he is absolutely correct. but you

companies use plain english to rob you blind," david cay johnston. technical adjustment. what does that mean? in the interest of fairness, is there any scenario in which chained cpi does not hurt seniors? >> no. chained cpi is a good measure for the whole economy, but not for seniors who have rising health care costs. and looking at average health care costs doesn't work for older people because they're big consumers of health care. >> who is going to get hurt? i mean, if the -- if we cut social security this way? if this is done the way the white house is proposing it, who is going to get hurt? >> well, if you're 45 years old today, or 35 years old today, when you're 85, you will really feel this pain. the change over time will be significant. and the idea of chained cpi is that you'll institute things. so you may be eating hamburger today. you'll be eating chicken later because of chained cpi. and you may end up on cat food your last days. >> could it be that bad? is this a drastic move by the white house to propose this? >> it's a tiny move in terms of the economy. in the year 2050, the c
? >> yes, i do. i think rob's right. if we go past january 1, that's not a problem necessarily, people think this will be resolved by january 15th. but if we go past january 1 and we don't see any resolution in sight, people are thinking it might be months before we resolve a possibility. the psychological impact would be quite large. >> are you a fan, rob, of say we get some sort of framework that does, i mean for a long time, we keep kicking the can, keep kicking the can, a lot of people would settle for some can kicking now, even if it pushed the harder conversation into the summertime. is that what's going to happen? would that be okay? >> i suspect it will. i'm quite, i would say pessimistic about getting at the real issue. the real issue, as greg alluded to, is medical costs in entitlements in the medium term. insurance rates, pharmaceutical monopolies, hospitalization monopolies, are the essence of the problem. all you have to do is look at every other industrial country. we pay almost double for care that's ranked 37th in the world by the world health organization. getting at t
to it. >> we'll leave it at that. i do not want to get in trouble. all right. roll the open, rob. >>> i'm don lemon. it is the top of the hour. we're going if debt you caught up on the day's headlines. egypt is divided over a new draft constitution. supporters of the president mohamed morsi protested near egypt's high court building today and blocked judges from entering. the high court reacted by indefinitely suspending all court sessions. that will postpone a ruling on the legitimacy of the group that wrote the constitution. president morsi has declared his decisions are now immune from judicial oversight. >>> hungarians took to the streets protesting comments made by a member of the country's far right opposition party. last week a member of the parliament suggested it would be timely to tally up people of jewish ancestry bringing back outrage and memories of the nazi party. the comments followed a debate over fighting in the gaza strip and national security. the lawmaker later apologized and said his remarks were misunderstood. >>> three suicide bombers all in cars today attacked a
weekend. all right, rob. what do you think? you think we're going to get a deal done by the year end? >> i think there will probably be a deal done. i think you have to look at the market fundamentals today and say equities are as cheap as th they've been in 50 years relative to bonds. equities are going to stay firm. the second thing is the money flows going to bonds, that's probably not going to be the right place to be once they settle this thing. the third and the most important thing is the u.s. economy is the most vibrant, adaptable, innovative and creative economy on the planet. i think that means we're coming out and starting to see that in many sectors today. we're bullish and think you need to look at this on a positive frame. >> maria, i'm less bullish than that. that sounds very optimistic. i would love to believe that, but if you compare valuations of equities versus bonds, yes, there's a huge spread right now, but that doesn't necessarily make equities really cheap. it's just a relative trade. i think, also, yes, we're a vibrant economy. we certainly are a strong economy. i t
internationalist left-wing conspiracy. this is a very much a bipartisan idea. george w. bush, rob dole, richard thornburgh, not exactly a list of socialists. they're all for this treaty. and that's because it's really a very simple, basic idea. >> supporters of this u.n. treaty say because the senate has these r.u.d.s, these advise and consent things that limit the scope and define the scope of it, that is a protection that this treaty would ever be used to try to change u.s. law. he says that's not the case. >> it is the case because these objections that he was raising, they were raised at the committee level. and what the sponsors of the treaty did was, okay, we don't think this is a legitimate concern but just to be doubly sure that we know what this treaty means, they put in essentially amendments that say you can't go to an american court and try to enforce this treaty. the u.n., no one can do that. so again, it's a paranoid fantasy. it's not reality. >> are there cases where -- that you know of where u.n. bureaucrats, you know, not even english-speaking u.n. bureaucrats living in geneva
joined by a couple key players, including tim geithner and rob neighbors, the white house's liaison to capitol hill. he's the go-to guy who's been shuttling the paper back and forth throughout this. boehner was also joined by an aide that boehner sources have not named. i don't want to read too much into this larry. but you can get a sense from the amount of people in the room that they're getting into at least some level of detail here. if it was just the two principals, you'd expect a more general conversation. with that number of people in the room, maybe some more details getting hashed out. both sides describing the meeting as a frank one. saying as they have been throughout this that the lines of communication are open, but no major announcement here after the meeting. no news here so far on what was actually traded in terms of offers and counteroffers here in this meeting tonight. >> i think any meeting is a good meeting. at least the lines of communication are open. treasury man geithner, he was the most hawkish on raising the top marginal tax rates, something that john boeh
a great relationship to banking. the bank robber willie sutton. they asked him why he robbed the banks at least reputedly and he said that's where the money is. if we're going to cut let's go where the money is. in the military budget, particularly in that part of the military budget unrelated to legitimate national security needs, unrelated to the need to protect people who really are in trouble. we are still fully stocked to wen a thermonuclear war with the soviet union long after there isn't one. we are still protecting germany, italy, england, and austria from staalin and his successors even though they are now strong enough to meet a threat which in fact doesn't exist. i just had my very able aid marcus rose check this for me. over the last ten years we have spent $3.8 billion in medicare. that's true. during that same period we spent $5.6 billion on the military. the military has been going up fast faster and it includes an awful lot of expenditure, unnecessary. we're reading today that canada is recoring whether they're going to buy the f-35. the f-35 is a very, very well concei
